The Graduate "One Word: Plastics":
It is ironic that plastic rice is cheaper than real rice when peak oil production is looming. Instead of burning Picassos for heat, we eat them.
You would rather a club quote perhaps....
Tyler checks his watch....
It's getting exciting now.

Bottled water has cost more than gasoline for over 10 years now.

No inflation! Back up the truck and buy them up. And here is the heralded sputnik moment - - - moon shot!!!!
Nice call on that one. And the teflon Aussie is on the bid anyways. Even after a fairly dovish RBA statement.
Is that with or without the cadmium flavored rice?
PPI blowing past expectations, 6.6% vs. 6.1%. Nice spread on the PPI/CPI...should keep the veil over the masses...number one rule of plutocracy (ahem Egypt!) keep the masses sedated
Yeah PPI a shocker at 6.6 (5.9 prior). Not good news for chinesse companies. Im sure Hu is on the phone to the chairsatan right now asking for advice on how to strip out commodity prices from the PPI.
Well, I for one am glad everything is alright!
Remember when CNBC used to provide the kind of relevant data and insight ZH does?.....
.....Neither do I.
Where o where is Ted Davis this valentines night?
they report the china # as straight
And now Brent and WTI ramp up on such good news.
That oughta be good news for FDX.
I'm in Beijing on Friday, Nanjing on Saturday, and Wuxi on Monday.
I'll report back the price of deep-fried sewer rat when I get back!
Mubarak in a coma!!! that was fast
no, he was placed in suspended animation, so that the next generation of egyptians, would re-elect him as pharoah once again!
Go long agricultural products, especially wheat, corn and soya bean. I pray every night that the current drought in China would devastate all the winter wheat crop! Screw the Chinese!
Be careful what you wish for. Suffering is a contagion that crosses oceans overnight.
Quintus Horatius? Oh!..not
.. it's tmoselry know it all. He must be quoting Jefferson Davis "Boss" Hogg. West Okey shack dwelling unpaid gold pimp doomer
Fuck man... you wish mass starvation on a people because... why exactly? If you have issue with the government of China, they will not be affected by the loss of food.
A) you are a heartless piece of shit
B) you are a dumb fucking kid who knows not what you are wishing for.
Only a famine will wake the Chinese up and get rid of the current regime. Almost every countrywide uprising in the Chinese history started with a big famine.
And what, exactly, do you think will replace the current regime? The death of millions will bring about a harsher, more controlling, more sociopathic government. That is the history of China.
C) the fallout will destroy the oligharchs here ...
and PPI came in strong China is trying that Goldilocks crap the US tried to pull in 2007, before the economy imploded.
everyone in the universe knows china manipulates every data that comes out
China is c-hair away from hyperinflation.
You wanna make a bet zero hedge, bet China tightens like mad coming quarter, and sells a shit load of UST's and Shanighai short's on. A better bet, will send the global economy into a ice-age, say 6mths long. Till maniacal Bernanke buys another 600billion.
As for the AUD, blame the lazy banks sitting on long carry trade plays, rejoice when they get crunched on a HFT short sell
It matters not what they report any more or any government for that concern....
What matters is whether I can afford what I need to survive.
Life of luxury items will not exist, as the need to exist with even less becomes life.
Sticking feathers up your butt does not make you a chicken.
And yet you keep trying.

4. (C) GDP figures are "man-made" and therefore unreliable, Li said. When evaluating Liaoning's economy, he focuses on three figures: 1) electricity consumption, which was up 10 percent in Liaoning last year; 2) volume of rail cargo, which is fairly accurate because fees are charged for each unit of weight; and 3) amount of loans disbursed, which also tends to be accurate given the interest fees charged. By looking at these three figures, Li said he can measure with relative accuracy the speed of economic growth. All other figures, especially GDP statistics, are "for reference only," he said smiling.
Well done on the forecast, Tyler! Impressive.
Good Michael Pettis piece on the Japanification of the Chinese economy, where holding down wages and subsidies to investment lead to long term deflationary disaster.
why does everyone compare china to Japan? Just bcause they are both east asian doesn't mean their economies will follow the same path. The country that should be compared to Japan is United States, which is about to experience deflationary disaster.
It's all Oriental isn't it? What's the difference? Rugs, rice, noodles...shit, man, I can't even tell the difference.
they will not let america go into deflation. period.
haven't ypu learned anything. any hint of prices falling will be met by anther qe. everytime asset prices fall they used to have a rate cut, since they can't now it means another qe.
..they cut food weighted!??
As if the market is gonna buy that BS! I'll bet the 5yr CDS is blowing out for China.
Big tightening ahead, send a ton of inflation back to the US.
I don't eat chinese food

Stocks hit three year high on bigger than expected US fiscal deficit and Chinese inflation only coming in at 5%
New York - The S&P 500 got a lift from expectations that FedEx lowered forecast due to weather will accelerate second quarter earnings as spending and business resumes postponement. Copper hit and all time new high as Chinese demand should accelerate on better than expected inflation data. Joe Smith from Deutsche Bank says "lower than expected Chinese inflation should open the door to more dovish comments from the PBoC"...
Fuckin' A Right!
Consumer stocks were the best performing sub-index in the S&P 500 Index, as credit card companies announced that they were increasing credit limits by two fold to keep up with the economic momentum. Billy Watson from LA was quoted as saying "great news on the credit limit, I almost had live within my means and sell my ipad"
MUST keep CPI number UNDER 5%!
I wonder if they'll catch on?
Does this mean I should BTFD?
Well that's a relief. I'll just pop on down to the corner rice vendor and show them the headline. Be eating good tonight!
Eat better tomorrow, play AVL.
Top 8.33 (in pre-market 2 weeks ago), bottom 7.02 (set last week).

Kewl, rally on!
(Excuse me while I puke -again.)
Statistician who lie like dog wake up with fleas.
Statistician who fart in church sit in pew.
Statistician who shave inflation lose face.
That was Cornfucious that said that, not to be technical....
buzzsaw99 say: mynhair who squawk like dodo wind up with egg on face.
cornholio say: i need tp for my bunghole.
Buzz, I for one really like those sayings and got a kick out of them.
But then again, I really like to fart in a space suit. :)
